The statistics of breast cancer in the united states in the year 2000
The 9. Cancer is a complex topic. Estimates for the current year are based on past data.
We show striking differences between the apparent and corrected trends between and Similar breast cancer trends were observed among black and non-Hispanic white women. Decline in Breast Cancer Incidence United States, Breast cancer is the most commonly diagnosed cancer among females in the United States 1.
Results The recent decrease in the incidence of breast cancer overall stabilized near per woman-years by —, reflecting a transient decrease in ER-positive cancers and a steady decrease in ER-negative cancers.
As was seen with incidence rates, black men have the highest mortality rates of colon and rectum, lung and bronchus, and prostate cancers.
Corrected projections indicate that the rate of ER-positive breast cancer will increase from throughespecially for younger women, and that the rate of ER-negative breast cancer will decrease. The estimated number of cancer deaths for each state was calculated with the same modeling procedure used for the total US Table 4.
Breast cancer statistics worldwide 2017
If current trends continue, the incidence of ER-positive breast cancers will increase, the incidence of ER-negative breast cancers will continue to decrease, and the incidence of breast cancer overall will remain similar to its current level. Staff members at health-care facilities abstract cancer incidence data from patients' medical records, enter the data into the facility's own cancer registry, if it has one, and then send the data to the regional or state registry. Breast cancer deaths were highest in at 43, and have declined to 41, in Incidence rates of localized, regional, and unstaged female breast cancer decreased from to ; no significant change occurred in incidence rates of distant female breast cancer from to Because these statistics are based on large groups of people, they cannot be used to predict exactly what will happen to an individual patient. Abstract Background The incidence of breast cancer increased in the United States until circa then decreased, mostly among women with estrogen receptor ER —positive cancers. The upward trend among females is primarily due to sustained increases in the number of deaths from lung and bronchus cancer. Studies should focus on examining possible causes for this decrease and analyzing data, which will become available in Among women, the recorded number of total cancer deaths continues to increase, although the rate of increase has diminished in recent years. No significant increase occurred in any state included in the analysis, and no geographic pattern was observed. Besides skin cancer, breast cancer is the most commonly diagnosed cancer among American women. National Cancer Institute. One innovation introduced by these studies was the application of statistical methods to account for the possible impact of missing ER data on the estimated trends.
